As the cost of living continues to rise there is an increasing demand for alternative energy resources that can provide cleaner and more cost efficient results to consumers. You just have to look at gas and oil prices to realize that there is indeed a crisis amongst us.
But the problem doesn’t not stop there!
Even the price of electricity is becoming unaffordable and thousands have resorted to turning off their power at certain times – but there is hope! Thanks to recent developments to solar energy research we now have a viable alternative to carbon fueled electricity and it provides savings of up to 80% on your Power Bill and contains no carbon emissions making it environmentally friendly.
Buying a Solar Power generator system can be very expensive depending on the size of your home and if you are seriously considering purchasing one expect to pay around $3000 upwards for a unit OR you can learn how to make solar panels and build one from scratch using materials that will cost you no more than $200.
The latter option is much cheaper and not really that hard to do if you have a good guide that can show you step by step how to construct a DIY Solar Panel.
The materials you need can be found in your home and at the local hardware store except for the solar cells. Many of the programs list sources for solar cells.
Solar cells that can be bought cheap
Sheets of glass
All the materials displayed above can be used to build a DIY solar panel that can output as much as a commercial system on the market. As mentioned before as long as you have a detailed easy to follow guide you’ll have one made in no time.
If you aren’t so handy yourself, then find your materials using a good plan and hire subcontractors to do the work for you. You will probably need a licensed electrician to make the connection between your installation and the utility company anyway.
Plus some of the new solar cells are plug together so it is no longer necessary to solder cells together. My brother just finished one for his get away on a mountain top in South Carolina where electric was a problem. Said the new cells are easy to work with…like plugging in a phone charger!
